Music today is an individual thing

Re "Want a revolution? Don't look to pop" (Viewpoints, Feb. 5): Sadly, today's music is more an independent item to be enjoyed alone on digital listening device.

People download individual recordings and have a diverse playlist of their own. I can't recall the last time I heard a stereo playing from someone's open living room windows on a Saturday. The challenge of bringing something new musically that will create change is architecturally almost impossible.

We are not on the same page in terms of news, as we have hundreds of cable channels to watch. In a like way, we are on our own planet musically; listening to a collection of music that bears little resemblence to someone else's collection. Facebook seems the only forum that most people visit, but with postings singular to each person who posts a page. Hence the apathy of this age.
